Rocky’s Big Adventure

This is a project I have been working on for the past few weeks. It is a 23 page children’s story book coloring book about the little Saw-whet Owl found in the Rockefeller Christmas tree. I saw the story. after Thanksgiving, on the morning NBC News show. Apparently the little owl was trapped in the tree when it was cut down in upstate New York, and spent three days there while the tree was being brought to Rockefeller Center Plaza in New York City. It was found by a worker and taken to a wildlife sanctuary, where it was given food and water. The owl seemed to be fine and was released back into the wild several days later.

I thought it would make a great children’s story. So, I created the illustrations from the pictures I saw on the News Story video clips. I made up the story as I thought it might have happened, and decided to make it into a coloring book as well. I self-published it this week and had it spiral bound so the pages would lay open. I also got heavier weight paper so the colors would not blead through. Now I will pass them out to family and friends with children who will enjoy the story.
